This was a great hike. Can't wait to bring the kids here in the summer.

I didn't do the whole hike because it was late March (winter) when I checked this out. It's awesome though because the canyon is frozen, so you can go into the canyon and explore it's magical iciness. It was quite an easy hike to get into it but you definitely need cleats for your boots.

I hiked the Old Fort Point and the Red Squirrel portion of this trail. The Red Squirrel portion is a flat little trail that leads into Old Fort Point trail. Old Fort Point starts off ascending stairs down near the Athabasca River. You then start your climb on the trail. It is a decent pull and a very rewarding if not spectacular view. When I hiked to the summit there was a Big Horn Ram and his mate sitting on top of the mountain! great treat! We also came across a huge Elk and his Harlem on the Red Squirrel.

Also known as the 6 Bridges trail (Because there are 6 bridges which cross the Maligne River) The river has cut a deep Gorge into the rock (At the first few bridges), this is another trail, you can sorta customize you route, so it's as easy or difficult as you choose to make it) doing all 6 bridges, of coarse is the longest & most difficult, paths are paved early on but that disappears the farther you go, as well as the crowds.
